Continuing my rediscovery of pastels

I am continuing down my path of rediscovering pastels. For this drawing I did just about the entire piece in Sennilier extra soft pastels. They are very expensive, especially for a piece this large (51″ x 40″). The colors are amazing, I really don’t think the photograph does it justice but its about the best I could get. I also used Arches 140lb cold press rough water color paper which allowed me to really work the pastels over and over, much like a painting. Its not a perfect piece and there are some area’s that I feel could use improvement but she’s a beaut to look at!
